[Shawn Miller] " I like what they've done to make Fusion more accessible to a wider audience, but I think they're missing an opportunity to develop Fusion Studio into the kind of hero VFX application that can do everything that Nuke does, at a fraction of the price."

I absolutely agree. It seems so unnecessary to adopt the strategy that it can only be one product and that must be the dumbed down version. Why not allow the two to exist in parallel?

You'd have thought that R&D work put into making a truly top end version of Fusion would filter back down the food chain and make the overall "Resolve" offering stronger. Not to do this seems to me very short-sighted.

They're putting a huge amount of effort into ramping up what Fairlight can do - the latest version has some incredible new features. Why not a similar push to drive Fusion back up towards the top end of VFX?

I fear that Grant for all his many talents just isn't remotely in tune with the VFX world - he's not interested, so the development is never going to come.

[Shawn Miller] "What are your plans for compositing software going forward? I've heard good things about Natron."

Yes, Natron looks very promising. But I have to admit that my VFX needs are sufficiently modest these days that Fusion 9 still just about covers them. The problem is that learning this stuff so you can work as fast as you need means a serious investment of time and you need to make that investment wisely. If I were doing a lot more VFX, it would be ridiculous to consider anything other than Nuke ... and that's a really big shame. The market really deserves better than the total dominance of just one very aggressive player.
